How Can I Support Struggling Readers Using CAPIT?

When students make mistakes, let’s not enable them by giving them the answers. You can empower your students with two tools: our Visual Mnemonics, and our Pocket Chart.

If students see and letter and forget the sound that the letter spells—Ask them: “What does it look like?” They will try to remember our Visual Mnemonic (see Fig. 1).

If students forget a Spelling—Direct them to the Pocket Chart. It contains all the Sounds and Spelling Patterns the students have learned so far (see Fig. 2).

Our Visual Mnemonics & Pocket Chart give students the ability to self-correct and the confidence to become Independent Readers.
